From glass hair to scarves, here are the perfect hairstyles to copy this Valentine's Day
The perfect Valentine's Day look isn't just about finding the perfect outfit and choosing the perfect makeup. Hair can make or break your style, so finding the right style is everything. So we've found some romantic, effortless and super easy styles to inspire your look.
Whether you're going out, staying in, hanging with your partner or chilling with your BFF, here are the perfect hairstyles for your Valentine's Day.
1. Easy, messy bun
No hair inspo list would be complete without an iteration of the messy bun. Why? Because they look romantic and effortless pretty – and because they're dead easy. There's no right or wrong way to do it, just keep it messy, not polished.
2. Add a clip
In case you hadn't heard, embellished and sparkly hairclips are all the rage for 2019. We're loving this trend and Valentine's Day could just be the perfect day to give it a try. Try pulling the front sections of hair to the back and securing with the clip or just show it off in front.
3. Embrace loose strands
It's baaack! You know the two front strands of hair we all used to pull out of our ponytails and buns in high school. Well, this trend is back but in a more sophisticated way. Make sure your pony or bun isn't too tight and the sections of hair at the front aren't too thin – this is the key to a pretty, romantic look rather than something that looks too severe.
4. Beachy waves
Let's be real. Beachy waves will never go out of style. We love this iteration on Sammy Robinson. Her loose waves on the bottom sections of hair and a middle part make this a modern and polished take on the classic look.
5. The half high pony
This style looks great on hair with lots of volume and can add impact to thinner hair too. Pull the sections of hair around the crown of your head into a high ponytail. Make sure to leave your fringe or strategic front sections loose to keep it modern.
6. Low twisted bun
This low-bun look is just as pretty from the front as it is from the back. Part your hair in the middle and secure it with an elastic. Then simply twirl your hair around the elastic and secure again with pins or another elastic.
7. Add a scarf
For a bit of retro flair, add a scarf to your ponytail. This adds so much charm to an ordinary hairstyle and works on low and high ponytails. It's pretty and romantic – perfect for Valentine's Day
8. Try glass hair
The glass hair trend doesn't seem to be going anywhere so why not give it a try. It's perfect for anyone with short hair. The idea is to smooth your hair to the point it's so sleek it looks like glass.
9. The double bun
This is a style for anyone who doesn't take themselves too seriously – or anyone who's obsessed with 90s Emma Bunton or Gwen Stefani. You can keep this style looking modern by not tying your buns too tightly and leaving some loose sections out at the front.
10. The high pony
This is a great one for long hair – plus it's really, really easy. Tie your pony up high, we're talking on the very top of your head. Then let your tresses drape around you like the mermaid you are.
11. Loose braid
This style is perfect for anyone with a balayage or ombre dye because it shows off all the tones and colours in your hair. You can get fancy and start off with a reverse ponytail and then add your braiding. Or just braid from the beginning. It will all look pretty in the end, just keep it messy and loose.
12. Extreme side-part
For all those babes out there with shorter hair, this style is perfect. Part your hair as far over on one side as you can and flip your hair over. You might want to spray it so it holds. Adding a texturising product can help this style look fresh and choppy.
